Astonishing bicycle parking garages in the Netherlands

 One of the largest bicycle parking garages in the Netherlands has been built under the Koningin Julianaplein, right in front of the Central Station in the dutch city The Hague. Silo and Studio Marsman developed a great spatial idea that modifies parking your bike into a museum-like experience. The remarkable result improves convenience and safety for the thousands of everyday users. The link between bicycle and train is crucial in the urban mobility system. But, underground parking places are often unpleasant due to low ceilings, and the lack of daylight and aspects of the surroundings. With room for about eight thousand bicycles, the Hague's Municipality proposes a service-oriented and future-proof idea. The vast, light white dome, smart directional indicating, capacious ways, and back-lit glass walls form a surprisingly majestic experience and an outstanding quality level. The combined application of light and spatial integrity makes the parking look more capacious. Moreover, th

What does our planet look like with 1 kilometre of sea-level rise or drop?

If all the ice on Earth were to melt, it could lead to a global sea level rise of approximately 70 meters (230 feet), according to estimates from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) . Under no climate change scenario will there be an increase in the level of the world's oceans by more than 100 meters. However, it's intriguing to examine a hypothetical world map displaying a 1-kilometer increase in global sea level.  The first two maps show what our planet looks like if sea levels were to rise by 1000 meters, how much of the planet's surface would still be above water. The world with one-kilometre sea-level rise Political map of the planet with one-kilometre sea-level rise Even if all the ice on our planet melted, the sea level would only increase by 70 - 100 meters. The maps above are just a bit of fiction. The world maps with 1000 meters sea-level drop more realistic. Suppose our planet's magnetic field faded, the atmosphere to be blown out into spac

Range of penguins mapped

Penguins are marine birds that inhabit most utmost only in the Southern Hemisphere. Only the Galapagos penguin lives north of the equator. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid, and other sea organisms. Despite that, they incredibly adapted for living in the seawater. They spend approximately half of their lives on the beach and the other half in the sea. The map below displays where penguins are inhabited in the earth. Vivid Maps The largest penguin species is the emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) on medium; adults are approximately 1.1 meters (3 feet 7 inches) tall and weigh 35 kilograms (77 pounds). The smallest penguin species is the blue penguin (Eudyptula minor), which reaches only 33 centimetres (13 inches) tall and weighs 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds). The map below presents the geographical spread of different penguin species.

Distribution of the Big Cats

 Thirty-eight species of cats exist on our planet. Most of them are relatively small. The term “big cat” is are usually used to relate to any of the five species of the genus Panthera: lion (Panthera leo), tiger (Panthera tigris), jaguar (Panthera onca), leopard (Panthera pardus), and snow leopard (Panthera uncia). Excluding for the snow leopard, these big cat species can roar.  A more extensive explanation of the term covers species outside of Panthera including the cougar (Puma concolor), clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa), Sunda clouded leopard (Neofelis diardi), cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) and even the several lynxes species. But, these added species also do not roar. Notwithstanding enormous diversity in size, different cat species are pretty alike in both body structure and behaviour, except the cheetah, which significantly stands out from the other big and small cats. All cats are carnivores. Spatial distribution of the Big Cats Natural ranges of all big cats cover all landmasse
